Epson printer scannerpostscript“Heaven help me!!” was my plea (at 1:30 PM) as I wrapped the printer/scanner in a large plastic trash bag and moved it to the extremely overcrowded storage building.

I attempted to remove (salvage) the ink cartridges but unable…. As I “messed” with the Epson Workhorse, it seemed to be working OK. I decided to keep it long enough to attempt a BIG scanning project.
